Tooting Arts Club's acclaimed site-specific production of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd has extended its West End run until 30 May 2015.

The production, first seen in Harrington's Pie and Mash shop in Tooting last year, has transplanted to a 'pop-up pie shop' at 39-45 Shaftesbury Avenue whilst Harrington's undergoes refurbishment.

Tooting Arts have "recreated the interior of Harrington's, meticulously building an exact replica which now houses the show."

Sweeney Todd is directed by Bill Buckhurst with musical direction is from Benjamin Cox. It's produced by Rachel Edwards.
